I think we all assumed it was wrong, but Xray did confirm their website is wrong and the new center diff is 2015 only.

The diff gear fits only the XB4'15. It will not fit XB4, XB4'14 and XB4 2WD due the different length of the drive shafts.

It's probably not lost. I ordered my 2015 XB4 from KleimKram and it took nearly a full 4 weeks to get to me. After the first 4 days, the tracking had no updates until 2 days prior to being delivered. I too thought my car was at the bottom of the Atlantic, but it did eventually arrive . . . 2 weeks after I could have had it by ordering from A Main or Stormer

I bought the XRay 2mm lexan wings and they arrived today. WOW . . . these things are burly! I had to use two hands on my lexan scissors to cut through them. They are as close to a solid plastic wing as you can get. We'll see how much longer they last on the track than normal wings, but man they look and feel impenetrable.

Anyone have any advice on saddle vs shorty for the 15? I will be running in on a hard packed/clay mix. Medium to high traction.

Hey Joel, you'll really like the 2015! The manuals in the kit have a lot of bad information, so I would just download the updated manual from XRay's site and use that one.

If you're building the kit in shorty configuration, the manual skips around to the back quite a bit. There are two complete set's of center drive shafts included in the kit. One set for saddle configuration and the other set for shorty configuration. Early in the manual (Step 2) they have you building the front and rear transmissions with the center drive shafts from Bag 02 . . . those are the drive shafts for the saddle pack configuration! The center drive shafts for the shorty configuration are in bag 09.

Also, if you are building the kit for a shorty pack, the differentials are installed in the gear case with the crown gear on the opposite side of that of the saddle pack configuration. I of course used the wrong drive shafts and installed the differentials backwards had to disassemble the front and rear gear boxes by the time I figured it all out

Otherwise, just pay close attention to the screw lengths being used everywhere. You open these bags and there are screws left over that are to be used in the subsequent steps, so you can easily get confused.

I built the car to the kit set-up except for the diffs. I used the front and rear diff oils I liked in my 2014 which was 8K front and 5K rear. I really like how it handles even on the two vastly different tracks I've been running on.

My center diff is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I'm going to start with 80K and hope I'm in the ball park. I run my slipper pretty loose now, so hopefully I'm close.

On my '14 I was pushing a lot on turn in. I was running the Tyler Vik Tacoma setup except for the 6deg carriers, I put them on and it made a huge difference, turns 100x better now.

Ok, got my center diff. Now I just need the buggy to go along with it...it should be here Thursday.
I was thinking of starting at 100,000. I have 60k, 80k, 100, 300 and 500 as well.

Any recommendations on where to start for a medium to high bite treated clay/dirt track?
